Oh, yeah, I think you're right. It's that pesky English language
again: When you said "a Transfer-Coding is *required* to provide safe
transport", I thought (and Roy too, probably) you were saying that in
order to have safe transport, one requires a transfer-coding. What you
were actually saying is that in order to be a transfer-coding, it
is required to provide safe transport.

I think you're right... we probably should check for "chunked" as
well if Transfer-Enoding is present.

I presume you're talking about the request, not the response, right,
